    Corona Attendance.

    I will go with a mask requirement. But I won't go until Florida gets a better handle on its numbers and it is removed from the mandatory quarantine list.

    A sequel? Nah, not this one

    I bought myself a few pieces when I lived in Germany, and yes, the stuff is expensive if you want something above Halloween costume quality, but it looks really good and lasts a long time. I plan to buy my wife a nice Dirndl when we take out next trip.

    We did these calculations last week. So far for the US, COVID-19 has a 22% more deadly case mortality rate than our worst flu season in the last 10 years. In absolute numbers, it is much worse too, although I don't remember the exact math.

    Release the taxes! (Thanks, NYT.) Trump is busted and broke, as suspected.

    I've seen this before, but I have to say, the last 3 minutes could not be any weirder, even for WWII-era propaganda.

    Disneyland To Open Sept. 16th?

    Is there a single area of Texas that has weather that a person not from Texas could even remotely tolerate in the summer, much less want to go out of their way to experience?

    I would agree about "no bad vacation", but then I took one with the person who is now my ex-girlfriend...

    The most on-point data that we can extrapolate to a future pandemic will be the mitigation meaures. The patterns of natural immunity that infections confer on survivors, however, is different for every virus, as are the mortality and morbidity.

    Btw, for a trip into Opposite Land, browse through the Disneyland threads on this forum. Many of the falisies they we regularly debunk here are passed around as the going truth over there.

    A sequel? Nah, not this one

    So why not just base the damn thing in Norway to begin with? Norway was part of Sweden during the period where it looks the movies take place, so just make Elsa a Grand-Duchess, or something immediately below the rank of Queen. I'm over-thinking this. Its a fictional country that although it...

    Actually, go to a fest in Bavaria or Austria, and you'll see plenty of people wearing the traditional garb ("Tracht") without ironic intent. Young people in particular seem to enjoy the chance to dress up. And their outfits are usually much nicer than the mass-produced stuff Disney cast...

    I wanted to go to Mont Tremblant again this year (my exhibit #1 of what a Disney-owned ski resort would look like), but it looks like that won't happen. It's also a nice half-way point to meet with my wife's family from Ontario.

    This upcoming season, I'm planning to stay away from the resorts that see a lot of visitors from outside the region. Won't be going to Bretton Woods, or Stowe and nixed the idea of trying Killington for the first time. Hoping that Burke Mountain, Jay Peak and Cannon Mountain remain relatively...
